Women can get their ego’s boosted by wearing an Ego Booster Bra

Boost your Ego with a Ego Booster Bra!

Warning: Graphic content. There is a video of a woman wearing a bra.

“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.”
― C.G. Jung

I can not accept myself completely Mr. Jung. How can I accept myself when my bust size is so much smaller than other women. I really want to feel better about myself and increase my self-esteem.

Did you realize your sense  of self-esteem or self-importance can be boosted by the simple act of wearing a Lily of France Ego Booster bra?

I needed a new bra. While roaming through the racks of bras in a department store,  I found a Lily of France Ego Booster bra.
I could boost my ego by adding a cup size!

A bigger cup size is what I need to feel better about myself.

Who knew that the simple act of going from a 34C to a 34D would bring me emotional satisfaction. I could increase not only my cup size by buying this bra, but I would also increase my self-esteem.

And here I was taking night classes to learn Computer Graphics and Typography and Adobe Indesign so I could design and format the covers and text for the books I have written.

All I had to do to feel better about myself was buy a bra. For $34.00 I could boost my ego. Each class I took at college is $439.00, which is a total of $1,317. Minus the cost of one bra at $34.00, is a savings of $1,283.

Great people have great egos; maybe that’s what makes them great.
― Paul Arden

Does Paul Arden know if Great People with Great Egos are wearing a Lily of France  Ego Boost Push up bra?

And how will men get their ego’s boosted? Will they have to wear an Ego Booster Bra too?

Women do not need push up bras or night classes to boost their ego.

We do not need a pay check or a day job to boost our ego.

We can be stay at home mom’s or women with no children.

We can be flat chested or fat or skinny or tall or short.

Our sense of self-worth does not depend on our cup-size or the size of our bank account.

God made us. We are fearfully and wonderfully made.

It is a lie, to think our sense of self-worth is based on external factors. 

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Believe that. You may not believe in God. You may have no desire to praise God. But believe you are wonderfully made.

Go find a mirror and smile at your reflection.  You don’t have to buy a bra to boost your ego.

I disagree with C.G.Jung. The most terrifying thing is not to accept oneself completely. The most terrifying thing is to go through life thinking you are not enough.

The most terrifying thing is to go through life thinking you are not enough. (Click to tweet. tweet tweet)

You are enough. 

I asked my husband, “Nick, what do you think it means to boost your ego?”

“It makes you feel better about yourself. Have you worn that particular item yet? Did it boost your ego?”

“Yes, I wore it. It didn’t work.”

I bought the bra. My cup size was one size bigger. The only thing it did was make me feel warmer. The extra padding was an extra layer of insulation.

I take the night classes because I want to learn. Not to boost my ego.

I am enough.
You are enough.
We are enough. 

What do you do to boost your ego? How do you increase your self-esteem? Or do you feel that you are enough? Please tell me in the comments. I would love to chat.

    I have a friend; she absolutely accepts me as I am. I will text her a simple,”Feeling blah today” or “Prayers please!)” and she will send a smile or an encouraging Bible verse. Even if she’s busy and I don’t hear back from her until later, just knowing she’s there is a reminder of God’s love and acceptance. I have always been in the encourager/supporter role all my life, and I need to be the one receiving sometimes! She is “Jesus with skin” to my life!
    As for physically, I purposely don’t buy the um…”warmer” bras! Lol I want to look in the mirror and choose to be Okay as I am, although I do make wardrobe choices at times based on what enhances areas I’m happiER with;) Oh, and if I am exercising and finding the end of my proverbial rope coming much to quickly, I call out to my kiddoes, and they respond with a hearty, “Go, mama go!” “SI se puedeeee” (You can do it!) ;D

    I get a good nights sleep every night, I wake in the morning knowing I am perfect in every way (for me), I feel good about who I am, I do not wear an “Ego Booster Bra”, in fact I lost one of my breasts to cancer several years ago & I still think my body is beautiful. I was a stay at home Mom, raised 2 wonderful children who gave me 5 amazing grandchildren in all & now I live by myself in my Condo & am quite happy with my life.

  • kathunsworth

    Loved it I never had enough…..that said my mother informed me that being small was great when you played sport lol…no bouncing worries……now I have accepted who I am, I love new underwear just like the next gal….but it does not give me wings…….I am happy with who I am…just need to work on the extra lumps of me that sprang out of no where in mid life and did not end up on my chest…sadly

  • Abiola Olaleye

    Beautiful. And when I take off the bra, what happens? Poof. Ego deflated. No thanks.
    I don’t want that kind of ego boost, I want the confidence that comes from knowing who I am. A beautifully and wonderfully crafted creature. And that is what I remind myself everyday. And my ego, no confidence is constantly boosted, confident in my own skin and at peace with all the not so fine marks.

  • I agree with Anne. I appreciate your writing, sense of humor and the unique person that is Pamela. It was a funny story. I can just imagine you with your new bra – it does make our clothes fit better though. As for ego boosting. Not really unless your cleavage looks absolutely fantastic. That will work for a flat (ish) chested woman like me.
    I don’t want my ego boosted – there is nothing worse than a egotist. I am who I am. Take it or leave it. I don’t care.
    I like who I am.
    The good and the bad.
    Keep warm (ps my grandmother used to wrap a scarf around her chest then put on a bra 😉

    • Abiola Olaleye

      I agree, Pamela is uniquely funny.
      Couldn’t help smiling when I read your last line. I battled with self issues for a long time and now I wouldn’t change a thing about me.

  • You are so funny. You were warmer because of the extra padding. I did laugh out loud. My husband wondered what I was reading about. Thanks for being you, Pamela. I so appreciate your writing.

    I am learning I am enough, but in this area, I am a slow learner.

    • Hello Anne,
      So happy my story actually caused you to laugh.
      You are enough Anne. Go take another look in the mirror. Your grandchildren see you.

    Great post

  • Christa Sterken

    Fantastic post! I started out laughing and then shifted to gratitude. Having fought body image, among other “images” my whole life, I am settling into a place where I know I am enough right now. Keep truth telling Pamela
